Book Review: The Snow Witch

The Snow Witch

Book Blurb from Goodreads:

A GRANDFATHER CLOCK. A GLASS LOCKET. A POWERFUL CURSE UNLEASHED ON CHRISTMAS EVE.

Twelve-year-old Kitty Wigeon can't wait for Christmas at St Flurries, a grand old manor house in the countryside, until one chilly night she vanishes without a trace.

One hundred years later… Still grieving over the death of their mother, Kes Bunting and his younger sister Star, are sent to live at St Flurries. They find a house steeped in mystery and brimming with secrets. 

Who, or what, is making footprints in the snow?

And what evil force is taking a cold grip on Star?

Wrap up warm as you join Kes, and a cast of eccentric snow creatures, in a race against time to solve a hundred-year-old curse. Will he succeed? Or will the fate of his sister be decided by a shivery kiss from… the Snow Witch?



Book Review:

🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

Rosie Boyes crafts a bewitching tale of a young boy learns all about love. This middle grade fantasy is full of all the good things. It has lots of creative magic, mystery, and the joys and heartbreak of life.
Kes is the main character in 2018. He is a likeable, protective older brother of his little sister, Star. They are taken out of foster care to live with a grandmother that they dont remember in an old house with lots of secrets.

Throughout the story, Kes must decide what to do and who to trust as he races against the clock after Star falls sick. He must solve an old mystery in order to save his sister and his new best friend. There is so much suspense it kept me on my toes. This is such a beautiful story, I absolutely loved it!

Thank you to the author for this wonderful story!
